    The 2022/23 English Premier League season continues this weekend and on the 20th of August we have a meeting between AFC Bournemouth and Arsenal.

    The match will be played at the Vitality Stadium and the hosts begin the weekend on 3 points while the visitors are on 6 points.

    AFC Bournemouth come into the match on the back of a 4-0 loss at defending champions Manchester City last weekend.

    It was always going to be a difficult ask for AFC Bournemouth to come away from the game with anything and they fell a goal behind in the 19th minute.

    Manchester City scored 2 more goals before half time and could take it easy in the second half, adding a fourth goal in the 79th minute.

    However, AFC Bournemouth will be looking forward to playing in-front of their own fans again having started the season with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa at the Vitality Stadium.

    The goals were scored at the beginning and end of the match and it was a fantastic way to begin the season for AFC Bournemouth.

    Home form in the Premier League, including the 2019/20 season shows AFC Bournemouth are undefeated in 3 of their last 4 home Premier League matches.

    Clean sheets when playing at home in the Premier League have been an issue and trends show AFC Bournemouth have kept only 2 clean sheets in their last 14 home Premier League games.

    Arsenal travel to the Vitality Stadium on the back of a good 4-2 victory at home over Leicester City last weekend. The Gunners were 2-0 up at half-time thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus on his home league debut.

    Leicester City struck back early in the second half but Arsenal wasted no time in re-establishing their 2 goal lead and both teams were to score again before the final whistle.

    That was the second successive win for Arsenal in the Premier League this season. They started their campaign with a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace and including the win over Everton at the end of last season, Arsenal have won their last 3 Premier League fixtures.

    Away form in the Premier League shows Arsenal have won 8 of their last 12 games. Keeping clean sheets has not come easy for the Gunners and they have kept just a single clean sheet in their 7 most recent away league matches.

    Team news and AFC Bournemouth are without the injured quartet of Dominic Solanke, Jordan Zemura, Joe Rothwell, and Ryan Fredericks.

    Arsenal are expected to continue without Reiss Nelson and Fábio Vieira, who have a muscle and foot injury, respectively.

    This Arsenal team look full of goals right now and we expect them to score in this game. The Gunners may concede against AFC Bournemouth, who will be buoyed by the home crowd but Arsenal should have more than enough to win, with over 3.5 goals scored in the match.
